Liquid chocolate spilled across six lanes of traffic after semi truck overturns

Tons of liquid chocolate spilled onto a roadway in Poland early Wednesday morning after a truck overturned. The auto lurched, the tank's contents spilled out onto the road, and the driver was hospitalized with a broken arm.

"The cooling chocolate is worse than snow [on the roadway]", said fire fighter Bogdan Kowalski.

It remains unclear what caused the lorry to crash into the motorway's central reservation, however images showed it sprawled across the road obstructing traffic in both directions.

The driver, reportedly aged in his 60s, is being treated for minor injuries.

Rescue officials used large amounts of hot water to clear the solidifying chocolate.

Kukawka added that the stretch of highway rarely sees road accidents, and that the unfortunate chocolate spillage was definitely a first.

The spill also posed an interesting challenge to emergency responders: How exactly does one clean up a chocolate-covered road?

Ugh, just think of 24 tons of chocolate being jet-washed away.
